Patrick Husting

Add-In Developer, Prompt Engineer & Data Modeler


Patrick Husting is a Seattle-area business leader, serial entrepreneur, and software developer who worked in Microsoft’s consulting business in the late 1990s. He came up with the idea for Ghostwriter last fall when he was using ChatGPT for writing assistance, and got tired of cutting and pasting, and switching between windows.

Husting is the developer of a new third-party add-in called Ghostwriter that lets users query ChatGPT and other OpenAI language models in a sidebar, to have the AI chatbot generate responses and content directly in the document they’re drafting. It’s available for Microsoft.
